The Optimizing Control and Energy Saving Operations of One Teaching Building
MetadataShow full item record
The control system of the central air conditioning in one teaching building is optimized in this paper, which includes the rational controls of a water chilling unit's available machine time and down- time in advance, the operational numbers of the units and pumps, the temperature of the chilled water, and so on. By means of the experiments that the units ran in summer, the results reveal that compared with traditional air conditioning system that does not adopt the automatic control system, it can save the energy consumption of the air conditioning system to a large extent. In other words, the optimizing control system possesses enormous development potential. Therefore, the control method and the energy-saving strategies in this paper can provide information and references for other central air conditioning systems to save energy.
